MINI has updated the Countryman off-roader with a range of subtle tweaks, including changes to the interior and some new paint colours.

Buyers now get new gloss black ring surrounds for the large central speedometer and the Countryman’s circular air vents, although if you opt for the Chrome Line package these will be finished in chrome instead.

Most noticeable for current Countryman owners will be the fact that the controls for the electric windows have been moved from the centre console to the front door armrests.

The MINI Countryman now also comes with a three-seat rear bench as standard, but buyers can specify two individual seats at no extra cost. The latter set-up allows owners to specify a central rail that runs the length of the cabin and will let passengers slide attachments such as drinks holders along it.

New paint finishes for the exterior include Brilliant Copper Metallic and Blazing Red Metallic.

The three petrol and three diesel engines haven’t been tweaked, so still range from the 89bhp entry-level model up to the 181bhp Countryman Cooper S. MINI also offers a performance-focused JCW Countryman, fitted with a 215bhp engine.

The JCW gets all-wheel drive as standard, but for all other versions it will be an optional extra.

Updated MINI Countryman models arrive in showrooms this November, with the unchanged price list starting from £16,510.
